Whatever it is, it haunts the minds of young children and entices teenagers to test their bravery on what locals call Donkey Lady Bridge.
The Urban Legend is a well-known San Antonio legend which has many variations and eye-witness encounters and on this episode we will reveal the mystery of Donkey Lady Bridge.
This is Unsolved Mysteries of the World, Season Two, Episode Three, The Donkey Lady.
Whatever the Donkey Lady is, a ghost, or a physical creature, she is said to roam the woods around the end of Jett Rd and will appear on the bridge. She is said to jump upon your vehicle as you cross the bridge and damage the body with her hooves. Anyone capturing a glimpse will no doubt scream in horror, as they see what appears to be a woman with a donkey face.
Like all urban legends there are various stories surrounding the inception. One story tells of a woman who lived in the nearby woods in the 1950s who was attacked by her drunk husband one night. The husband set her house on fire, killing her children and badly burning the woman. She was terribly disfigured in the fire, fusing her fingers and toes together creating hoof-like hands and feet. Her head was so badly burned in the fire that it healed in such a warped, elongated way, it resembled that of a donkey. Legend tells that she is roaming the forested area by the tragedy in search for her children. If you honk your horn, it is said she will be alerted and chase you down.
